The Korsteel J P Oval Link Loose Ring Snaffle Sweet Iron Bit is made with a hand polished stainless steel. Providing the extreme comfort for your horse this bit has a unique curved shape of the mouthpiece that has a number of good advantages including eliminating the ‘nutcracker’ tongue pinching action that you can get from many conventional bits.

Sweet iron is used to promote salivation and acceptance of the bit due to the 'sweet' taste in the horse's mouth when the metal oxidises. Some rusting may occur when not in use, a light coating of oil during storage will prevent this.

All horses mouths and tongues vary in size and shape, the bit must be the correct size and type for your horse.
